The simplified journey of designing your web business is amazing...
Making it happen is do-able!
Craft projects and children do go hand-in-hand. Whether a toddler or teenager. Think of all the creative characteristics you can help instil in your kids as they create.
They can learn design skills, patience in coping, role playing using doll houses as the teaching tool, keeping the doll house clean and orderly... Actually the last one will help us as moms. When our kids learn the value of taking care of theirs and others belongings everyone benefits.
It is never too soon to teach children solid values. Yes even as they learn any crafting technique.

Imagine Filming a Walkthrough of your Miniature !
A 3D Walkthrough is a series of picture files saved in .avi format that can be played like a movie by other applications such as Windows Media Player.
There are two ways to record a walkthrough:
- Draw a path in floor plan view using the CAD tools, then direct the program to record a walkthrough along that path.
- Create a 3D view, then begin recording and use the Move Camera tools to navigate through the view. Quote from Home Designer User's Guide
